this happened today. My girlfriend and i had sex. she is not on birth control. I came before she was finished and the condom ended up slipping up a little. When i took it out i noticed that below her vagina there was a slight amount of white, milky stuff. I guess the sperm must have leaked out of the back of the condom, and despite pressing into her rather hard, i dont think, but i could be mistaken, that the rim of the condom didnt enter her. I told her not to move and came back with a tissue and wiped it up. I then widened her lips a bit to see if there was anything visible inside of her, and from what i could see, there was none. i told her to go into the bathroom and wash herself with soap and she said she did on the outside as well as a tad on the inside. At the moment, we dont really have $70 to spend on plan b without asking our parents. Do we needit? What can we do? Is this worth making a big deal about. I know its possible, but is it likely? Please help.

Referring to the data you provided (condom partially slipped during intercourse, milky substance on the vagina lips which was wiped out), the possibility of pregnancy cannot be excluded. The white milky substance might have been just mucus produced by the vaginal mucus glands.

If the condom slipped completely the possibility for pregnancy is significantly higher. The mucus from the vaginal glands is less sticky than the sperm and is more similar to saliva, whereas the sperm has a higher consistency.

The measures you took are just the right ones recommended to do after intercourse in which the sperm has been released inside the vagina.

Since you cannot tell for sure whether the milky substance was semen or mucus your girlfriend is advised to visit a gynecologist for a physical examination, hormonal laboratory tests and an ultrasound scan to check for pregnancy.
The plan B pill is taken very soon after intercourse and releases a hormone that prevents the fertilization of the egg or its implantation if fertilization already occurred.
